"Really what we’re talking about is helping people get on their feet. It’s not a hand out, it’s a hand up." In the last decade, America’s poverty rate has increased from 10 per cent, to 14 to15 per cent – and in some communities, reached disturbing highs of 29 to 30 per cent. One World Everybody Eats however, is addressing the hunger that comes with poverty in an innovative way that preserves dignity: pay-as-you-can cafes. This warm film tells the story of this alternative to conventional hunger relief efforts and reveals the compassion and collaboration of community at the same time.
